Aga Khan Development Network

In 2005, the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) launched an integrated rural development project in the Sofia region, with the objective of increasing rice yields by 100 percent. The APRA-GIR (L’Apprentissage Participatif Recherche Action pour la Gestion Intégrée du Riz) approach provides training to groups of farmers on alternative rice cultivation practices. Such practices include mapping, planning, using different seeds, fertilizers and water management amongst several others.
